Continuing a highly successful tradition that has made two iconic names in the high-performance industry virtually synonymous, the Edelbrock Group announced this week its partnership with Musi Racing Engines will march full-steam into the new year.
This partnership began more than 20 years ago when industry pioneers Vic Edelbrock and Pat Musi teamed up to develop the first 555 engine prototype. This engine, known today as the Edelbrock-Musi 555 Crate Engine has continually been one of Edelbrock’s most in-demand and high-performing crate engines.
“We are thrilled to continue this long-time partnership”, stated Chris Douglas, Chief Commercial Officer for Edelbrock Group. “Pat Musi has a reputation in the industry for winning and excellence, as do we. It makes us perfect partners. Our Edelbrock Race Center, located within Pat’s engine shop continues to support key elements of our growth strategy. We are excited to see what develops over the year.”
Pat Musi is equally as excited about the continued partnership. “This year is shaping up to be the best year ever of the partnership,” Pat says. “We have a lot of momentum on the racing and engine building programs, and we’re in position to capitalize on the hard work that has been put in over the last few years to build the foundation of the Race Center. I can’t wait to see where we’re able to take this partnership.”
Currently, Edelbrock offers three configurations of the 555 Crate Engine: AVS2 Carbureted, Pro-Flo 4 EFI, and Pro-Flo 4 XT EFI. From the precision manufacturing of Edelbrock cylinder heads and COMP Cams valvetrain components to Pat’s EFI tuning expertise and advanced testing capabilities, every crate engine stands on 50-plus years of Musi’s championship engine building experience and 150+ combined years of Edelbrock Group’s engineering, R&D and manufacturing resources.
There are many more exciting things coming in 2022. The first of which is the Grand Opening/Open House of Pat’s new Racing Center in Mooresville, NC. More information regarding this event will be released soon.
